It was a fast, action packed night this past weekend in Florida as Ryan Dungey grabbed his second straight Monster Energy Supercross
victory and fourth of the season. Dungey’s teammate Marvin Musquin grabbed his third win of the season to complete the KTM sweep at the Daytona International Speedway
. Both Dungey and Musquin extended their point leads.
Aside from Vicki Golden
sitting this round out...the whole 250 qualified into the night show with great times. Once the night show kicked off, Kyle Cunningham
used a great start in his heat to stay in the mix eventually finishing in 6th spot. Cunningham was able to translate that to his first solid start to finish main event with a finish just outside the top 10 in 11th.
made it a little harder on himself in his heat, after a back of the pack start; Peters mounted a methodic charge to squeak directly into the main with a 9th. Once in the main, Peters
put in 15 solid laps to take his best finish of the year in 7th place.
couldn't get his starts figured out and is still searching for his first main event start of the year. Justin Starling
had to go to the LCQ, but after an extremely entertaining fight for the lead...Starling
grabbed second spot to make his 4th straight main. Starling is still trying to find that main event finish we all know he is capable of, but a 17th would be his end result for Daytona. We can’t wait to see what Starling can do once we head to Indy.
After all of the 450 guys qualified in the top 25, they immediately went to work in the night show with 3 of the 4 main the main. Nick Wey
used his veteran experience to navigate the rutted out Daytona track to qualify to the main out of his semi. By the time the main rolled around, Wey’s fitness worked for him as the ONEiD backed rider put in 20 consistent laps to finish up 15th. Wey continues to impress in what could be his last full season.
out of the other semi was Josh Grant, Grant had been fast all day having posted the 6th fastest time in day qualifiers. Josh made what was hands down was the pass of the night in his semi squaring up two riders and going from 7th to 5th in one corner.
He would later get one more rider to finish 4th and transfer to the main. JG’s
11th place finish was not an accurate result to he speed he had. The Two Two Motorsports
rider now sits 14th in points heading into Indy next weekend.
Kyle Partridge and Heath Harrison were forced to the LCQ for their shot at the main. It was disaster off the start for one rider as Heath Harrison was collected in a first turn pile up. Heath has been riding so good and just missed 5th in his semi. His constant improvement is too good to be ignored and we expect the #224 to be in a main or two before the season ends.
Unlike Harrison, Kyle Partridge
didn’t go down and was 3rd off the start and quickly moved into 2nd. The 199
spent the rest of the LCQ chasing down Nick Schmidt for the lead. Partridge
would eventually settle for second and punched his ticket to the main! Partridge did what he could, but the gnarliest track of the year was pretty beat up by the end of the night and Kyle finished up 18th. The series and riders will now head to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis as the series head back inside for Round 11. All #MIXITUP
